Psalm 20

For the music leader. A psalm of David.

1 I pray that the LORD answers you whenever you are in trouble. Let the name of Jacob's God protect you.
2 Let God send help to you from the sanctuary and support you from Zion.
3 Let God recall your many grain offerings; let him savor your entirely burned offerings. Selah
4 Let God grant what is in your heart and fulfill all your plans.
5 Then we will rejoice that you've been helped. We will fly our flags in the name of our God. Let the LORD fulfill all your requests!
6 Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed one; God answers his anointed one from his heavenly sanctuary, answering with mighty acts of salvation achieved by his strong hand.
7 Some people trust in chariots, others in horses; but we praise the LORD's name.
8 They will collapse and fall, but we will stand up straight and strong.
9 LORD, save the king! Let him answer us when we cry out!
